The Louisiana Social Pledge

We pledge our allegiance to Louisiana. We will embrace what makes us and our state unique. Louisiana will be recognized as a leader and innovator of the New South. Many great leaders of the future will come from this state. And we will show both the media and politicians that we are smarter than them. We will no longer have our resources exhausted and our people used and left behind. We will work hard and play hard. We will protect each other. We will support each other. We pledge that we will do whatever we can to get these things in motion right now. We will no longer wait for a path to be cleared for us. We will clear the path ourselves. And we ain’t giving up easily. We will socialize in the real world just as well as we do on the internet…in hopes to organize ourselves effectively.

Life is a Play (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

Life is full of surprises
When the curtain rises

Drama comes to us all
Let’s pray we don’t fall

We all have a role to play
We are stars every day

Black, woman, gay, old
Your life is precious gold

Take control of who you are
Indeed you shall go very far

You’ve got me and I got you
No matter if act one or two

Trust life’s direction my friend
Let’s dance happily until the end
